NORTH Korea is on the verge of an historic economic breakdown as United Nations’ sanctions begin to hit home.
North Korea could face its biggest ever financial collapse due to despot Kim Jong-un’s relentless nuclear war programme.
It could suffer even great economic hardship than during the famine-ridden 1990s, which led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, South Korea’s unification minister said.
Cho Myoung-gyon told a political forum this weekend North Korea is on the verge of a large-scale collapse due to dictator Kim’s one-track mind.
He said sanctions issued by the UN in response to the hermit state’s reckless missile launches and nuclear tests could spark chaos and death in the country.
